Along the Water's Edge is a short lyrical film that addresses the water crises being faced by countless Indigenous communities across Canada. Set in the near future, the film explores the possible future of Indigenous people's living in these communities should the issues continue to be ignored.
The film was shot entirely on traditional Haudenosaunee territory, in and around the Six Nations Reserve in Ontario, Canada.
The film was shot on the Sony FS7, Panasonic GH5 and Sony A6500.
All location audio recorded with Rode NTG-1 and Rode Stereo Mics. Voiceover recorded using Rode Video Mic.
The majority of the film was shot handheld to create visual tension that highlights the uncertain future that is in front of the characters. Shot with an aim to use as much natural light as possible, we wanted to make the film feel very grounded in reality despite being set in a future, dystopic environment.
